People Who Became Wildly Successful After Facing Rejection
Sometimes, you jump out of the gate with a great idea that you can polish and run with. Everything’s going well — until you get hit with a failure. Failure punches you in the gut, leaving you with throbbing wounds and the inability to do anything but moan about what might have been.
But take heart – failure isn’t the end, unless you let it be. Failure means you’re on the road that many others have taken to success. Here are 5 people who lived through failure before going on to become successful around the world:
- Milton Hershey
The man who blessed us with the sweet milk-chocolate treat we all love wasn’t successful the first time around. Before launching his own candy business, he had worked for a local candy factory. But when he decided to go out on his own, he failed miserably.
Despite two more failures, he returned to the family farm and perfected the art of making delicious milk-chocolate candy, which we enjoy in the form of Hershey chocolate today.
- Albert Einstein
Despite being known as a true genius in the present day, this intellectual didn’t have a successful start. As a kid, he didn’t begin to speak a word until he was 4 years old. A few years later, his elementary school teachers considered him lazy because he would ask abstract questions that made no sense to others.
He kept on anyway, eventually formulating the theory of relativity — something most of us still can’t understand today.
- Michael Jordan
As a kid, Jordan loved basketball and knew he wanted to make a career out of it, though no coach would give him a chance because he was short. After using an inside connection to get into a basketball camp from which players for college teams were chosen, Jordan got noticed by a coach — who still chose not to invite him to the team.
Jordan returned home discouraged, but decided to prove the coach wrong. Now a member of the NBA Hall of Fame, just about everyone would agree he is successful.
- Walt Disney
Disney began his career by being fired by a newspaper for not being creative enough. Later, his Mickey Mouse cartoons were rejected because they were deemed to be “too scary for women.” If that wasn’t enough, “The Three Little Pigs” was also turned down because it only had four characters.
Thankfully, we have the Disney Company today because Walt chose not to listen to any of his critics and press forward towards his dreams.
- Kris Carr
We all get hit by unforeseen obstacles. For Carr, it was a rare cancer. Carr fought her disease head on with a new nutritional lifestyle, developing a career as a successful author and health coach in the process. Despite facing challenging circumstances from the start, she is now looked to as one the most knowledgeable experts on healthy living online today.
